Private tours and private hire

On Wednesdays, Thursdays+, Fridays and Sundays we operate our scheduled Cotswolds Day Tours from Stratford-upon-Avon but at other times* you can charter the Go Cotswolds minibus! 

The Go Cotswolds minibus has 16 passenger seats, so is ideally suited for small group tours and transport. If your group is larger than 16 people, we can also arrange to hire a larger vehicle to accommodate you.

We love showing people the Cotswolds! On a private Cotswolds tour, you and your group (of up to 16 people) will have exclusive use of the Go Cotswolds minibus and driver/guide.

We can either:

  • Take you on our regular tour route, or
  • Work with you to devise a personalised itinerary, allowing you to visit the places we don’t normally go to, including villages such as Castle Combe, Lacock, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Painswick, famous attractions such as Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace, and the towns/cities of Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath (where we can provide walking tours on request). 

Our regular scheduled tours start and end with a pick-up/drop-off in Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa or Moreton-in-Marsh, but on a private tour we can pick-up/drop-off at other locations, including London, Oxford, Bath, Birmingham, Coventry and more. We can also devise multi-day itineraries.

Private tours start from £350 for a full day.

Please contact us for more details!

Private Hire

When we’re not touring the Cotswolds, the Go Cotswolds minibus is available for private hire for general group transport (subject to availability).

We can provide minibus airport transfers to UK airports, including Birmingham International (BHX), Bristol (BRS), East Midlands (EMA), and London Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), City (LCY), Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN).

Please note: we do not have a luggage trailer or luggage rack on board the minibus. Therefore, if you are travelling with luggage, we can accommodate a maximum of 10 passengers to leave some room for your bags.

We can also provide group transport for corporate days out and Cheltenham Festival.


Please contact us to find out how we can help by calling Tom on 07786 920166emailing or by contacting us through Facebook or Twitter.

* Our scheduled tour service is (and always will be!) our priority. However, as the winter months are quieter we offer private tours and private hire on any day of the week between the start of November and the end of April, even on scheduled tour days (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays). Operating on a first-come, first-served basis we will continue to advertise and take advanced bookings for scheduled Cotswolds tours but we will be happy to take requests for other work during this period as well.

+Thursday tours operate from the start of June to the end of September.
